The folks at NeoGAF created some fake magazine ads for Madworld and apprantly Platinum Games saw them, showed them to Madworld's director, he picked his 10 favourites and now those lucky 10 are getting Madworld "Caution Sign" T-Shirts (very rare edition!)

so its 2 weeks later, and I picked this bad boy up and put an hour or so into it. And to put it lightly, its fucking nuts. I spent the whole time playing it grinning from maniacal ear to maniacal ear.
i managed to avoid everything about this game, and going into it without knowing anything about it i would think just makes it so much better. so i'll just skip ahead and say buy it. buy it buy it buy it. buy the damn thing. i dunno if it is everywhere else, but its a budget title here. and even having only played for an hour i'd say my $65 was definitely worth it.
now if you want some more random thoughts / impressions...
i mean, come on, you can slam a trash can over someone, then impale them in the head with a street sign, then throw them into a dumpster and watch them get sliced in half... whats not to love?
controls are good. a little clunky to start with, maybe, but in a bizarre turn of events the waggle here is actual satisfying - impaling someone with a street sign wouldn't be nearly as fun if you just had to push a button to do it.
the style this game oozes (like blood) is amazing. the comic styling, the contrast between black and white and that sweet sweet blood... brilliant. Not only that, but the character designs are great - I'm loving the pimp dude and his scary looking bitch.
but even better is the sound. the game is hilariously awesome. and with john dimaggio (bender baby please insert liquor) and greg proops (of whose line is it anyway and a bunch of roles in other shit) as a couple of wisecracking smartarse commentators how could it not be?
just buy this damn thing. come on. you know you want to
